Small, light, sounds good when it works, but over all it's not worth the aggravation.

Summary: I rue the day I bought an apple product and allowed it to change all of my MP3 files to M4a which in incompatible with anything except iPod. I liked that it is one of the smallest on the market and great for running, and it does sound good when it works. The real problem is that it kills the battery if you plug it into your computer to charge and you don't actually monitor or use your computer.
Summary: I was really excited to receive this product and when it arrived I downloaded everything from my old Ipod nano. But after trying to play a podcast I realized one fatal flaw, the Ipod can not skip a podcast so if I am not interested at the moment to listen to agriculture today well too bad.
The iPod shuffle is inexpensive, and didn't last very long.

Excerpt: If you're looking for an inexpensive mp3 player for a small amount of songs, this an affordable option. However, mine stopped working after a few months and since it's so cheap, I never really did anything about it. While it was working, I didn't like not having a screen on it, so I couldn't really pick a song without listening to all of them. I upgraded to the iPod Touch and couldn't be happier.
Summary: I am getting ready to send back my SECOND shuffle after I already had the first one replaced. Both units stopped working after one run with them. Any type of moisture around this unit will cause it to stop working. Both units would not play songs and could not be recognized by my computer when I plugged them back in. My older generation shuffle never had this issue so Apple dropped the ball on this newer version.
